TMZ is reporting that Lil Wayne was arrested near Yuma, Arizona last night on three felony counts: possession of dangerous drugs, possession of narcotics, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Law enforcement officials tell TMZ that the Drug Enforcement Agency was involved in the arrest. Lil Wayne’s tour bus reportedly went through a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint when the narcotics were allegedly found, that’s when the DEA was called in.
Wayne is currently in the custody of the Yuma County Sheriff’s Department, where he’ll be held pending his arraignment at 9:00 AM PT.
Wayne was arrested in Idaho last year for felony possession of drugs.
UPDATE: Cops say they found 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, and 41 grams of ecstasy pills on Wayne’s tour bus. Police also found $22,000 in cash and a 40-caliber pistol, but Wayne does have a permit to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Florida. The judge set his bond at $10,000. He should be released soon.
